Our story

David was offered an overseas posting, so we decided to rent out our home in London during our absence. Subsequently, after four years abroad, we decided to return to our own home. Sounds simple enough, you might think. Not so. We went through months of hell just to achieve this simple goal. And when we did finally get our home back we found it wasn't fit for pigs to live in...

We tell our story here in the hope that you won't make the same mistakes as we did and can benefit from the hours of research we did in the process of going through the nightmare. If you are thinking of renting out your home, you may have serious second thoughts if you read this.

Our Story:


See the photo gallery of the trashed house and the filth and destruction left by Karen Holliday, aka Karen Davies.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: To avoid confusion in case there are other persons of the same name: the Karen Holliday, aka Karen Davies, referred to on this website is the one who previously lived in Senga Road, Hackbridge and then at 30 Longfield Avenue, Hackbridge, Surrey, SM6 7BA, United Kingdom, from July 2001 until her eviction in June 2005. To the best of our knowledge she then continued to reside in the London Borough of Sutton.
